How much does a Jamaican flower bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Jamaican flower bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Jamaican flower bat (Phyllonycteris aphylla) on average weights 14 grams (0.03 lbs).

The Jamaican flower bat is from the family Phyllostomidae (genus: Phyllonycteris). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 7 cm (0′ 3″).

As a reference: An average human weights in at 62 kg (137 lbs) and reaches an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). Humans spend 280 days (40 weeks) in the womb of their mother and reach around 75 years of age.
